Use your financial expertise to make a difference to the lives of refugees.
START: Students and Refugees Together is a charity that work in partnership with families, individuals and organisations to facilitate the transition of refugees from people in need to self reliant contributors to their local communities. START recognises the skills and experiences that refugees bring to the city. As a learning organisation, START uniquely utilises the student placement as a resource which together with the strengths and skills of the community, we work out what support is needed and how to achieve it.
START is looking for a Treasurer to join their board and oversee the financial standing of the charity. The Board of Trustees plays a key role in the functioning and success of the charity. It sets the overall strategic direction and provides scrutiny to our processes and decisions. They are looking for a finance professional with excellent financial management and analysis skills to provide financial oversight and assist the strategic development of a growing organisation. The role would be suited to someone with or without previous board experience and presents a fantastic opportunity to not only share your knowledge and skills but learn from your fellow trustees and make a positive difference to the lives of refugees.
The board meets every 3 months in Plymouth and remote attendance can be supported. We are happy to arrange an informal chat with the charity before application. Applications must be made via Reach in the first instance. Please provide your CV, along with a covering letter stating why you wish to work for the organisation, how your skills would add value to the board and any other relevant information.
